More ‘Soft Language’ On Illegal Immigration

0 Shares

Remember a while back when we informed you that The Associated Press decided that the term “illegal immigrant” was no longer politically correct. Well, if you are a bleeding heart — or an overly sensitive moron — and opted use the kinder, gentler “undocumented immigrant” instead, you’re still being insensitive.

Via the Los Angeles Times:

The Los Angeles Times has announced new guidelines for covering immigration.

The goal is to “provide relevance and context and to avoid labels.”

That means stories will no longer refer to individuals as “illegal immigrants” or “undocumented immigrants,” but instead will describe a person’s circumstances.

A memo from The Times’ Standards and Practices Committee announcing the change explains the move away from labels:

“’Illegal immigrants’ is overly broad and does not accurately apply in every situation. The alternative suggested by the 1995 guidelines, ‘undocumented immigrants,’ similarly falls short of our goal of precision. It is also untrue in many cases, as with immigrants who possess passports or other documentation but lack valid visas.”

The Times has vowed to refer to illegal aliens as people who happen to be in the country illegally.

Use the examples below to learn how to sound like an oversensitive ninny when referring to illegal immigration:

Rodrigo, who crossed the border without papers, is an immigrant.

Sally is an immigrant who has not met the requirements to be a citizen.

Before his death in 2008, comedian George Carlin pretty much summed up how oversensitive people are making us all sound like idiots:

    this is not an ideological battle of left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is war against white people.

    Why do hostile globalist elite defend Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravage white majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

    East Asia is 99% yellow. Africa is 90% Black. West Asia is 99% Brown. But 3rd world colonizers, Muslims, Sikhs, Hispanics are aggressively advancing their agenda by annihilating gullible Whites, just as China annihilates Tibet.

    Why do gullible Whites cuckold for murderous anti-White elite, who confiscate our guns, infiltrate/subvert our banks & espionage agencies, indoctrinate White kids in academia/mass media, plunder White jobs/wages, & butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars?

    “Native” Americans are not native. They invaded from East Asia. Yellow & Brown races committed 10-times more genocide, slavery, imperialism than Whites. Since Old-Testament, Whites have been victims of Jewish/Crypto-Jewish, Turkic, Muslim, N.African imperialism, slavery, genocide.

    Gullible Whites should reject subversive anti-White ideologies – libertarianism, feminism, liberalism, & reject hostile slanders of racism. Love to all humanity, but White people must organize to advance their interests, their fertility, their homelands. Spread this message.
